Everything happens for a Riesling!
I love Riesling and think it is probably one of the most under-rated grape varieties these days. It's association with some of the less good wines coming from Germany in decades pass has meant that people have often been put off of trying it. But most of these wines were not even made from Riesling, so I am here to argue that it deserves your attention and affection!
Over the evening we will try several styles of Riesling including sparkling, dry wines, medium wines and sweet wines. Riesling has a versatility that not many other grape varieties are capable when it comes to different levels of sweetness and different flavours. We'll compare delicate examples for Germany to intensely flavoured Australian wines, and young wines to those that have aged for several years.
If you are a fan of Riesling then you'll already know this is a tasting not to be missed. Think you don't like it - we dare you to come along and find something you enjoy!
The tasting will include six wines samples, some nibbles, tasting sheets and presentation buy our resident Riesling enthusiast.
